Eighteen brand-new EV charging points are now live at Houlton’s community hub Dollman Farm.
Installed by leading EV specialist Rolec, the suite of new EV charging points are part of Houlton Master Developer Urban&Civic’s ongoing commitment to developing sustainable placemaking.
Dollman Farm Centre, situated in the heart of Rugby’s growing neighbourhood, is already the long-standing home of The Tuning Fork café and community events base The Barn.
The Co-Op and The Old Station Nursery, both of which are approaching their 12-month anniversary on site, also feature in the complex where soon they will be joined by collaborative co-working space The Exchange, due to open in October.
The district hub, a busy hive of community life at Houlton, has been designed to bring together community amenities for residents in one central space, and this latest addition, further bolsters that existing offering.
Situated within the car park outside The Co-Op, the newly installed charging points are just one of many new additions set to strengthen the district centre’s offering over the next 12-18 months.
Kyle Smith, Communications, Communities & Partnerships at Urban&Civic said: “We’re delighted to be able to unveil the new suite of Rolec charging points at Dollman Farm Centre.
“It remains Urban&Civic’s ongoing commitment, alongside our partners both on and off-site to develop communities that will flourish and thrive for many years to come.
“We know Electric Vehicles and the provision to charge EVs is fundamentally important to power the transition towards a greener future, with legislation from Summer 2022 now in place stipulating that EV charging points must be installed at all new residential homes and buildings.
“This latest addition to Dollman Farm is testament to our long-term goal of creating a sustainable sense of place at Houlton and there’s still so much more to come.”
